1 cup finely ground sucanat - you can grind it in the blender if it's too coarse (180 g)
2 tsp vanilla extract (8 g)
2 large eggs (116 g)
Blue, green and yellow food dye
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, and baking powder.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sucanat.
Add the vanilla and eggs to the butter and sugar and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients slowly, while the mixer is running on low. I like to add them just ¼ cup at a time to avoid having them make a mess everywhere.
Once the dough just mixed, divide it in half.
Mix half of the dough with blue food dye, and the other half with green and yellow to get a nice bright green.
Knead both colors of dough together and roll into a long log, about 20 inches long. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer for one hour.
Remove, roll it again to form a better cylinder and return to the freezer for another hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the dough and slice into ¼ inch circles. Place them one inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. 8 minutes will give you softer cookies, 10 minutes will be crispier.
Approximate cost/serving: By getting my butter, wheat, and sucanat in bulk, I save quite a bit of money. This ends up costing me just about $2.50 to make 4 dozen cookies. Can't get that deal in the grocery store! Vegetarian: While these don't contain meat, they do have eggs and dairy. You can replace the butter with coconut oil and use a flax gel to replace the eggs if you'd like to make them vegan.
